Cosmetic dentistry is one of the services we offer here at Pineland Family Dental in Summerville, SC. Although the general wish is for straighter teeth and a brighter smile, what people request specifically with cosmetic procedures has changed over the years. Below are three recent trends happening in this field.
Teeth Whitening: People are realizing that a natural look is the way to go and pure white is not natural! We’re happy to work with patients who want to brighten their smile but do not want it to look Photoshopped.
Gum Reshaping: This is also known as gum contouring and requested by people with “gummy” smiles. It does make the smile more attractive, but more importantly improves gum health.
Dental Implants for Younger Patients: There are younger patients requesting dental implants instead of bridges. They blend in with natural teeth and last a long time.
If you are considering a cosmetic procedure, talk to your dentist at your next visit or schedule an appointment to discuss your concerns and learn which cosmetic procedure might be right for you.
